Monsal Head - 16th September

Post  Admin on Sun Aug 12, 2012 8:49 pm

Sunday 16th September - Monsal Head
This is an eight mile walk which takes us from the lovely village of Ashford-in-the-Water to the equally delightful villages of Little Longstone and Litton before returning to the start via Cressbrook Dale and Monsal Dale, and of course Monsal Head itself. 385 metres of ascent on this walk which should take us about 5 hours altogether.

Details:-
Meet outside the Ashford Arms, Church Street, Ashford in the Water, DE45 1QB at 10.0 for 10.15 start. There is on street parking in the village as well as a small car park in the centre of the village.

Yes, that's the idea! It'll take people a while to get used to using the forum, so just bear with us.

Having said all that, Dez, Lynne, Tyler, Michelle, Jean, Andrea and me normally go on every walk so don't really need to put our names down! So that's 8 people walking up to now! (Cheers for posting incidentally!)

What a great walk today. The weather forcast didnt look very promising but the rain held off until we were nearly back, and it was just drizzle so I think we were lucky.
It was a lovely spot for our dinner. Well done to Anne D who won the draw.....even though it was a fix Evil or Very Mad

It was really nice today to be able to offer an extended walk for people who wanted to do an extra couple of miles, and I think that it worked well to split up and join up again later.

I never get tired of the view from Monsal Head, and with an ice cream in your hand I think it's one of life's greatest pleasures cheers

Not sure whether I'd want to go in the Ashford Arms again, they didn't seem to want non-eaters and the drinks were a rip off. Pretty rare too for a Derbyshire pub to not allow dogs, but that's not a problem.

Thanks to the 21 folk who turned up today, hope to see you all again soon.

Lovely walk today, and the rain kept off well too. Great to catch up with everyone in the pub after. Recommend the strawberry icecream at Mosel head, and well caught Steve, classic moments. Lol

Really enjoyed the walk on Sunday. The extended walk option after lunch is a great idea . Please put me down for the walk on 23 September and for the food after. What a Face
